Players from both Manchester City’s men and women’s teams took a break from their busy training schedules to take part in City in the Community's third annual golf day, Blues on the Green.

Fernandinho, Fernando, Daphne Corboz and Alex Brooks took the trip to Mottram Hall Golf Club to meet footballers and swap a football for a golf ball, heading to the green for a putting challenge.

The event raised more than £20,000 towards City in the Community’s work in Manchester and will support their flagship disability football programme that already provides free accessible football opportunities to 1,500 people.
